To be a bodyguard is unlike any other job.
It is the oldest and most dangerous profession, with great rewards and the ultimate risk, death.

Written for those who are curious about bodyguards and protection professionals present and future, The Way of the Bodyguard reveals the skills and techniques to be a consummate bodyguard while Nick Spill recounts his experiences that soar from the mundane to the volatile and violent.

More than a manual or a textbook, the book explores in human terms what it takes to be a winning protector in a dangerous world.

The Way of the Bodyguard explores how to be a bodyguard and protect your client and the mental and physical skills Nick Spill describes so deftly, translate to all professions. He provides strategies for success for everyone, whether they want to become an excellent protector or live their life to the fullest.

If you are curious about what it is like to be a bodyguard, want to become one or seek to escape into a world of unknown threats and logistical challenges, there is much to learn from the entertaining stories in The Way of the Bodyguard.

Dolphin Kicks and Cactus Pricks

I traveled with a group of Californian psychics to swim with dolphins in the Sea of Cortez.
